2017 Sushi Go! Domination Tournament Results!
Oct 29, 2017
This year we had 24 players enter the EBGL's 2017 Sushi Go! "Domination" (single elimination) tournament on Oct 27th and, as always, only one winner emerged...
Congrats to 2017 Rookie Antonio B (left) for winning first place and Michael F (right) for winning second place after just 3 rounds.
Both Antonio and Michael walked away with some nice gift certificates to Mission: Fun & Games. Congrats also to Patrick C and Sean S for winning the 2 door prizes!
Thanks to all of our members who brought or purchased copies of the game! The themed snacks added an interesting twist to the event.
Above and Below Tournament Results!
Oct 15, 2017
The Above and Below tournament ended on October 13th with first place going to Patrick C with 10 points (2W,0S,1P,2T,0L,0GW) over the three days. Second place was tied between Daniel C, Mike I, and Michael F with 8 points (1W,1S,1P,2T,0L,0GW)
Above and Below is a focus game for the EBGL history books as it not only broke our previous attendance record, but it was the first focus game to inspire it's own themed snacks on one of the nights!
Lots of thanks to everyone who helped support this focus game and make it one to remember!
